I can't wait to see one of those get stuffed in a miata. I've been considering the MZR swap, but don't know if they will even fit. When my father scores one in one of his auto salvage yards, I'll get serious. Until then, I plan on doing a turbo system on a 1.8.

Reviews in the papers here of the mzspd 3 have said it does have some torque steer... with the "mods" to make it not have it, it would be next to impossible to drive. Right now, it's at a "fun" level... <G>

Drool.... too bad all we get is red north of the border.....

SC for the one car, snail for the winter car... drool.....

Dave,

High 15's!

I'd rather get a Legacy GT and pay like 16k for something with 20k on it, for a 14.1sec 1/4 mile AWD car.

They even limited the boost in the first three gears to limit torque steer. I think it'll be more like mid-14s in the 1/4.

mazdaspeed needs to stop making DD cars. The MS6 would be cool, but they purposfully toned it down.

The Legacy GT is #2 a potential DD buy. E36 M3 is above it.

Just out of curiosity, what's everyone's hardon for AWD? The Mazdaspeed6, while all wheel drive, is not full time all wheel drive, it's primarily fwd. The handling dynamics of awd vehicles is that of a front driver unless you bugger it up by playing with the suspension.

And, yes, I do own an awd car. I bought mine for it's rallying heritage though.
